Local schools get help from McDonald's McTeacher's night.
Today McDonald's announced they raised approximately $8,000 for schools in the Topeka, Emporia, and Seneca areas.
Several schools in those areas teamed up with McDonald's on October 7th. All proceeds made between four and eight that night went to the schools.
The event raised over $156,000 total in Northeast Kansas, Missouri, and Illinois.
It was the second McTeacher's night of 2008.
The money will go towards field trips, school supplies and other PTO funds.
